Cade Cunnungham (DET) OVER 23.5 Points
Blog Picks (14-9-1) (1 Win in a Row)
Cade Cunningham, a talented 6′ 7″, 220-pound guard hailing from Oklahoma State, who earned the prestigious first overall pick in the 2021 draft. Many may remember him as a standout player during his high school days at Bowie High School in Arlington.
However, last season posed a significant challenge for Cunningham, as he played only 12 games due to a stress fracture in his leg, which required surgery. It was undoubtedly a tough period, but fast forward to the season opener, and Cunningham left a resounding impression. He displayed not only his trademark quickness but also a remarkable level of fitness and health. In that game, he made a significant impact by contributing 30 of his team’s 102 total points.
What’s even more noteworthy is the versatility of Cunningham’s performance. He demonstrated an ability to drive to the rim with finesse, as well as showcasing his proficiency in sinking midrange jumpers and knocking down four three-pointers. It’s a testament to his all-around game.
Adding another layer to the narrative, with Bojan Bogdanovic, who averaged an impressive 21.6 points per game last season, sidelined, the scoring load is squarely on Cunningham’s shoulders. It’s a responsibility he seems ready to embrace and excel in.
So, when assessing the upcoming games, Cade Cunningham’s resurgence isn’t just a story of talent; it’s also one of determination and resilience. He’s poised to be a driving force in his team’s offensive efforts tonight! I have him surpassing 23.5 points tonight!
